The Afghan Whigs at Bowery Ballroom, May 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)

The newly-reformed Afghan Whigs have been covering Frank Ocean's "Lovecrimes" at recent live shows (like at Bowery Ballroom back in May, video below) and have just released a studio version of the track which is a free download from their website. You can also stream it below. This is the second new recording the 'Whigs have released this year, the other being a cover of Marie "Queenie" Lyons' "See and Don't See."

The Whigs, who are curating and headlining this year's ATP NY ("I'll Be Your Mirror") which recently relocated from Asbury Park to Pier 36 in NYC, have recently added dates to their fall tour and that updated list is below.

While on the subject, tangentially, of Frank Ocean's Best New Music'd Channel Orange, it just got the "slowdown remix" treatment by DJ Slim K which you can stream below or download here.

Thanks a lot C3 / ACLFest for your stupid no shows in close vicinity clause.

Now TX get the Afghan Whigs at your crappy fest (1st downfall, should be IN a club) and we get a SHORT SET.

+plus the added bonus of every year not knowing if you are going home covered in human feces. YES, people it happened in 2009.
People were sliding, covering themselves and the dumbest were EATING IT!!!

^ Rest assured, NYC ATP will not get a short set. AW are a headliner, and will play a full 90+ minute set.
